We have a new unified Terms of Service and Privacy Policy

Dear Member,


We emailed you last month to let you know about changes we are making to our Terms of Service and Privacy Policy. These changes are key steps towards creating what's next for our consumers, like you, while empowering them with transparency and controls over how and when their data is used.

You can learn more about Oath and what these policies mean for you here, as well as more about the changes in our FAQs.

In order to continue to access your AOL Mail account after 10 July 2018, you will need to confirm you accept the Terms of Service. We also need a few moments of your time to explain how we manage your data and provide you with some choices in relation to the processing of that data.

Click here to start.

If you do not want the new Terms of Service and Privacy Policy to apply to you, you will no longer be able to access your account from 10 July 2018 . If you would like the contents of your email account, you may obtain a copy of your data by clicking here.

Thank you for your time and cooperation.

    yes they nearly got me..e mail says "final Warning" and looks like a Oath e mail..but if you look at the e mail it says Aol Service followed by a private email address.

    They try to divert you to a word doc for you to fill in your email and password and country. Dont do it, its a scam

    Getting to epidemic proportions now - average 5 or 6 a day - fortunately most identified as spam. Check the sender - if it's a private or individual's address it's the phishing e-mail.

    If you've clicked on one in error and signed in, change your password.

    I have been receiving these emails for the past few weeks, I have forwarded many of them to AOL spoof/phishing reporting address and they have confirmed that they are fake.

    I have not and will not respond to any of their links but I have sent replies, (both polite and very abusive to them!) but still the emails keep coming, I have been warned that my email will will be closed down on 22/8 but now it's the 25/8!

    My AOL account was hijacked last week and spam emails were sent to all my contacts.

    Since AOL stopped using their desktop software I have not been able to access my address book so I don't know how they did that.

    They also changed a setting in my AOL account to divert incoming emails to the "recently deleted" folder so I was not immediately aware of all the "bounced" emails for the many obsolete email addresses.

    I don't recall ticking anything from OATH, and have no idea how they accessed my account.

    Luckily my niece sent me a text early that morning to warn me, so I was able to change my password quite quickly.
